Nice and good trip. Travelled through Mussoorie, which is a hill station and a municipal board in the Dehradun district of the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand. New Delhi to Dehradun by Satabdi Express. From Dehradun to Mussorie by Taxi 1 hr journey.
Car drive was awesome as the newly built highways provide excellent facilities at the road side and the amenities like restaurant and food chains available at highway. The awesome road trip with nice locations during the journey. Good time to start the journey is early morning so as to reach destination within the time you must visit Bikanerwala during the journey from Delhi to Dehradun.
Must take this route to avoid traffic as this is the peak season and the condition of the roads are also good, just need to bear the bad roads for just 3 km. Must use navigation software. I used Drive+ every time and 99% successful.
The roads are safe and good but do check your headlights as well as other necessary equipment's before travelling at night as you are going to cross UP at night. And also don't stop anywhere if there is no car or traffic at night whether it may be a police checking or anything else, especially during late hours.
I traveled by train because it was the shortest path and the sight seeing of the mountains was awesome. The train terminated at Dehradun and from there we have to board bus. The bus service was too good with full of enjoyment. Once in a life everyone should visit here.
We travelled from our own car from new Delhi to Mussoorie. In the way we enjoy different food and had so much fun. There was also everything available on the way like petrol pump, restaurant and stay cottage. Its a safe way to travel by own car. We stay for some time in Meerut and Saharanpur for food and to take rest.
